What is the purpose of this website?

Nail Patella Syndrome is a complex condition that varies greatly between each individual. The purpose of the website is to provide information to each specialist field of medicine so that they may recognize those with NPS, as well as to provide contact personnel should further information be needed in the care of those diagnosed. In addition, this website hopes to provide information to the general public so that people who are just discovering that they have NPS have a place to go for information.

Orthopedics, Nephrology, Ophthalmology and Genetics have been highlighted as these are the specialist fields of medicine commonly associated with NPS. There are many other areas that should be included, for example Rheumatology, but for the moment we should concentrate on the four mentioned above. Please visit the Medical Involvement page for a more in depth look at each area.
